    I'm currently awaiting the arrival of Brave Maximus. He is MISB and will be my first experience with the mold... the mail is actually late and hopefully he will be here on monday. I'm doing my best to be patient, but really failing. I check the mail compulsively... 2-3 times today, and the mail isn't even delivered on Saturday.
    So how do you wait for your plastic crack?

    last time I had something that I was really excited about delivered, I sat in my window all day when it was supposed to arrive. it came 2 days later. I got into a verbal confrontation with the fedex guy about it.

    Don't think about it and time will pass much more faster.

    Directly after placing my order, I give myself amnesia by striking myself with a blunt object. Then when it finally arrives, late or otherwise, it feels like a gift from the skies.

    :lol  I wouldn't recommend beak's method as that proly will lead to long-term harm hahaha


    As for RW... well, he's just an ass so there's that. :p  but yeah, its not easy, especially if its a doozy, which Max certainly is. I remember when I won that MISB Overlord off Ebay.. it came from Singapore via registered mail, and WOW that was a LOOOONG two weeks! that's when you find a video game or something else equally consuming to help pass the time :lol

    Yeah, video games usually help quite a bit. I recomment God of War if you havent played it yet. Awsome game. I got it on Tuesday, and beat it today, but its an awsome story with some awsome battle scenes.

    The eBay seller I got my Brave Max off of last week was an extremely fast shipper. I won it on Saturday, and it arrived Wednesday afternoon. In the meantime, I got out other toys and cleared space. Congratulations- you've won a great bot.

    I'm more like that myself. But our parcel man comes around 8~8:30 am only, so if he doesn't come at that time there's no point waiting by the window.

    I hope you'll get yours ASAP, Sledge :)

    Let's just say that patience is NOT a word in RW's personal dictionary.

    Uh...wow. :eek: 

    Being the compulsive fella I am, I just buy stuff from stores. "Mail" means "waiting," and "waiting" means "boring," in my opinion.

    I'm actually pretty patient when it comes down to it. But sometimes I'll stay up late (I go to bed around 11am, mail usually comes at noon) and wait for it if I'm expecting something special.
